Acting on the suggestion of Alph. DC CandolJc and Bcnuett, this very natural
group, which was separated by JBiume from tin- remainder of the many-ovuled
Uvaria as a section, is upw constituted a dibtincl genus. It is clohdy allied "in floral
characters to Orophea, but the indefinite stamens and numerous ovules at oiicc dis-
tiuguish it. The only kiumu species, of the gcuius besides the following are those
described by Blurae from Java.

All the ffjM'^iuicus wo Inive scon from the Malayan Peninsula are in flower only,
and our description of the fruit ia copied from ISlumc. Jn the absence of fruit the
identification i* somewhat doubtful, but no difference can be detected except that
thy are larger-leaved than JJlumc*s figure and ]><*eiincuiS and we learn, from that
author that the loaves are exceedingly variublc*iu size, Oumrng'a No. 1135 is a very
ueavly allied species, but distinguished by its carpels being nearly sessile, aud covered
with lax ferruginous turnout mn.
